Some pictures of the gas tank. Still needs a good strong clear coat.





Anyone have any recommendations for a very strong clear coat?


Also, I need a new front tire. 18-3.00 Any specific tires I should look into.
Need a new chain


I dont want to spend a lot


Thanks all.

You can get nice Shinkos from Motorcycle Superstore for around $50.

Spend as much as you can on the best chain you can find.

Paint looks cool man. Good bit of orange peel though. Looks like it needs some more wet sanding to smooth it out before clear.

Thanks,


Well the orange peel on the tank is supposed to be there. I used Rustoleum Hammered. It gives an orange peel texture, its pretty cool. The problem is that the black stripe is kind of wrinkled. Any idea on how to fix that.


Also thanks for the advice. Is this the tire I need? http://www.amazon.com/Shinko-Tour-Master-Front-Tire/dp/B001CDALP8

Great idea on the Skateboard! I'll be watching to see how it finishes up!

Thanks, I got it all mounted up last night. So far it looks like its going to work out pretty sweet. I really like how the back fins up.


I am planning on putting my tail light right underneath the fin. Just have to find a small bright LED taillight for cheap.

Hey guys,
I found these flange mounts for the carb side, and have the ones already on the engine side. Now I just need to find a tube to squeeze in both sides.

For the cable, order one for a 68 cl175.
